This is a tough spot for the Clippers playing on a back to back. They came off a 5-2 Grammy road trip and with one days rest had to host the Washington Wizards and came away with the 110-103 home victory. The defense was loose so they kept some in reserve for this back to back spot with the Warriors. The line is high on Golden St. They have lost three of their past four games and five of seven. They are not the same team as last year. They are missing a key piece that was well valued on this club. Backup guard Jarrett Jack was lost in free agency over the offseason. Jack brought a starters quality off the bench with the second unit. Golden St was able to extend and preserve their leads when they brought in the second unit. Golden St would go to a three guard lineup late in games when trying to preserve leads. Jack was a stable ball handler who made good decisions so he was trusted by the coaching staff in the closing minutes of games. Without Jack the Warriors lack toughness at the guard position as they are more of a finesse team. We have seen the defense digress in recent games as the club has allowed over 102 points in four of their past seven games. They have lost four of their past five home games.
